Question-

Do you guys use a screwdriver to tap out old bearings on Kawasaki rims, or a Tusk or Motion Pro removal tool kit???

Silly question I know, but I've never kept a bike long enough to swap bearings until now. I've never done it, and these bearings have >85,000 miles on 'em

A lil something I wrote up for my powder coating buddies that didn't know how to remove...
There are other ways ...

Ok some of u guys always ask how to remove bearings from wheels so i thought i would throw some pics together with a little description of whats going on and were to get the correct tool to do it.
so heres were you can get what u need or google it for a better price.
H/D wheels are listed also!

ok so heres the tool

close up
Image

Wheel Bearing on both sides with sleeve in center (sportbike)
Image

Place the collet in the bearing so that the split is inside the wheel bearing.
Image
Image

A look from the other side of wheel..
Image

If the collet does not go all the way in the bearing tap with hammer until all the way in.
now to insert the driver into the bearing
Image
once you get the driver and collet aligned so they fit into one another hit the driver with hammer while on solid ground (i use a block of wood) to set the driver in the collet this opens the collet and grabs the bearing. Now elevate the wheel so the bearing can come out once u start hitting the driver. ( i use a old tire)
after a few hits it should be moving
Image

a few more hits and she's out
Image
Image
Image

now to repeat for the other side.
there u have 2 bearings and sleeve and a wheel ready to coat.

Very tricky .. :thumbs: I guess you would not want to reuse those bearings because of the beating on the center of the race ? :?:

Thanks guys. Smokin' I've had a set of allballs bearings laying around forever. Let's use them this go around and I'll get the ceramic for front/rear from you soon when i take both wheels off to powdercoat and replace the tire pressure sensor batteries :bigthumb:

Which specific tool you use to knock the bearings out?

Also, I can't remember if you have tire machine at your shop, if so you want all my tire business if i remove the wheels from the bike and bring 'em over? My 4 bikes go through some tires too.
